Iconic retired NASA mathematician Katherine Johnson, portrayed in the movie Hidden Figures, was quoted as saying:
“Do your best at all times. That’s the best you can do.”
-Katherine Johnson, retired NASA Mathematician
“Do your best at all times. That’s the best you can do.” How profound.
In a world that is obsessed with keeping up with the Jones and modeling oneself after the rich and famous, what would it look like if…
- …We did our level BEST at ALL times?
- …We paid less attention to the manufactured images of success on social media, in Hollywood and airbrushed magazine covers and paid more attention to fulfilling our God-given purpose?
- …We valued our uniqueness and maximized it to the fullest and unapologetically enjoyed the fruits of our labor?
What a world this would be! While you might not be able to make the entire world adopt this model, you certainly can demonstrate this by the way you live.
You can choose to value your uniqueness, maximize it and live in the awareness that the only limits that exist are those in your mind. -Alesha Brown, The Joy Guru
Katherine Johnson did and our world will never be the same because of icons like her.
Rest in Peace, Katherine Johnson. Thank you for the legacy you left behind.
